Tim Berners-Lee's radical new plan to upend the World Wide Web

Tim Berners-Lee's radical new plan to upend the World Wide Web | Networked Society | Scoop.it

With an ambitious decentralized platform, the father of the web hopes it’s game on for corporate tech giants like Facebook and Google.

 

This week, Berners-Lee will launch Inrupt, a startup that he has been building, in stealth mode, for the past nine months. Backed by Glasswing Ventures, its mission is to turbocharge a broader movement afoot, among developers around the world, to decentralize the web and take back power from the forces that have profited from centralizing it. In other words, it’s game on for Facebook, Google, Amazon.

 

For years now, Berners-Lee and other internet activists have been dreaming of a digital utopia where individuals control their own data and the internet remains free and open. But for Berners-Lee, the time for dreaming is over. 

 

“We have to do it now,” he says, displaying an intensity and urgency that is uncharacteristic for this soft-spoken academic. “It’s a historical moment.”

 

Ever since revelations emerged that Facebook had allowed people’s data to be misused by political operatives, Berners-Lee has felt an imperative to get this digital idyll into the real world. In a post published this weekend, Berners-Lee explains that he is taking a sabbatical from MIT to work full time on Inrupt...

Democracy in Jeopardy: Manipulating Feelings – Holochain –

As long as these platforms have to generate significant revenue to maintain or grow themselves, they will reasonably use every available and creative option to trigger human engagement. And we can’t change how humans are wired with any degree of speed or accuracy (and would we want to — it sounds like a recipe for cascading unintended side effects).

 

What we can change is the business models those platforms are based on. Since Holochain is run by a community, there isn’t a requirement for a business model to support the heavy costs of servers. We can do things differently and magnify different signals. 

 

  • Holochain can save democracy by encouraging organization models that don’t depend on the outcome of a manipulation.
  • Holochain can help enable payment direct to journalists.
  • Holochain can offer the infrastructure for Vendor Relationship Management .

World Alternative Movement 2 – The W.A.M. Trilogy 

World Alternative Movement 2 – The W.A.M. Trilogy  | Networked Society | Scoop.it

So far, local, community-based initiatives have been, by their nature, fragmented, and often have had little contact with or support from outside. There have been some efforts to address this, especially at regional and national level, but the effectiveness of these efforts has been limited. 

 

A key requirement, therefore, is to nurture and support this local dimension, while also facilitating greater inter-connectedness and networking between groups, and with other organizations. 

 

Our aim must be to lead, culturally and practically, a worldwide transition away from the big cities and back towards an essentially rural lifestyle, where technology, transportation and commodities will be accessible to everyone through a distributed inter-network.

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

This looks like a well worked out plan to get us from the present world that doesn't function for many to ... a world that we can all contribute to forming and that will allow us to live, love and create...

DIY networking: the path to a more democratic internet

DIY networking: the path to a more democratic internet | Networked Society | Scoop.it

A more democratic internet is possible via personal and community networking. Find out how to build your own connection to the world. 

 

DIY networking is an umbrella term for different types of grassroots networking, such as mesh networks. According to Vice magazine, mesh networks not only allow wifi routers to provide signals to wifi-enabled devices, as usual, but also, “routers have the ability to connect to and talk to each other. By ‘meshing’ them, or connecting them together, you are creating a larger wifi zone.” 

 

Artists have been looking at these networks as a way to expand and diversify our communication abilities, while questioning mainstream access to internet. 

 

A wireless router, in essence a special purpose computer, can do more than just connect your devices to the internet. It could host a wide variety of web services, from a simple site to a fully fledged collaborative platform, accessible only to those in physical proximity. 

 

These include a virtual announcement board for a block of apartments, an online guestbook for an urban garden, a file-sharing platform for a workshop, and many more creative uses of “self-hosted” web applications, like Wordpress, Owncloud and Etherpad that anyone can host on a private web server.

Radical new economic system will emerge from collapse of capitalism

Radical new economic system will emerge from collapse of capitalism | Networked Society | Scoop.it

Political adviser and author Jeremy Rifkin believes that the creation of a super internet heralds new economic system that could solve society’s sustainability challenges 

 

“This is the first new economic system since the advent of capitalism and socialism in the early 19th century so it’s a remarkable historical event and it’s going to transform our way of life fundamentally over the coming years,” Rifkin says. “It already is; we just haven’t framed it.” 

 

Some sectors, such as music and media, have already been disrupted as a result of the internet’s ability to let individuals and small groups compete with the major established players. Meanwhile, the mainstreaming of 3D printing and tech advances in logistics – such as the installation of billions of intelligent sensors across supply chains – means this phenomenon is now spreading from the virtual to the physical world, Rifkin says.

Community Land Trusts, Mutual Home Ownership, the Garden City Model and the Co-operative Land Bank 

Mike Lewis and Pat Conaty developed this argument in detail in their book The Resilience Imperative – Co-operative Transitions to a Steady-state Economy.

 

To promote the wider arguments in the book, Lewis and Conaty produced a series of very short articles. The following Special Report features their series on Community Land Trusts, Mutual Home Ownership, the Garden City Model and the Co-operative Land Bank.

 

The Garden City Model merits special attention, as Garden Cities that took land out of the market were a full expression of radical socialist and co-operative economy planning. Nowadays, a number of parts of the world are showing an interest in reviving them. 

 

These three short illustrated articles contained in the report provide a crash course in what CLTs and the CLB is, and how practical land reform can be systematically implemented to return land to the Commons.

Open Source Life: How the open movement will change everything

Open Source Life: How the open movement will change everything | Networked Society | Scoop.it

Consider this: in just a few short years, the open-source encyclopedia Wikipedia has made closed-source encyclopedias obsolete — both the hard-bound kind and the CD-ROM or commercial online kind. Goodbye World Book and Brittanica. 

 

The open-source concept was popularized through GNU and the GPL license, and it has spread ever since, in an increasingly rapid manner. The open-source OS, Linux, has been growing in users exponentially over the last few years, and while it still has a ways to go before it can challenge Microsoft or Apple, it has become a viable and even desirable alternative for many. 


Open-source alternatives have been growing in number and breadth: from office software to financial software to web and desktop utilities to games, just about any software you can think of has an open-source alternative. And in many cases, the open-source version is better. 

 

Now consider this: the open-source concept doesn’t have to just apply to software.

 

It can apply to anything in life, any area where information is currently in the hands of few instead of many, any area where a few people control the production and distribution and improvement of a product or service or entity...

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Sharing information instead of hiding it ... that is the big change that will obsolete many of today's centralised services and bring big change in physical production.

Michel Bauwens: Are We Shifting to a New Post-Capitalist Value Regime? | Networked Society | Scoop.it
Every 500 years or so, European civilization and now world civilization, has been rocked by fundamental shifts in its value regime, in which the rules of the game for acquiring wealth and livelihoods have dramatically changed. Following Yochai Benkler's seminal Wealth of Networks, which first identifies peer production, the P2P Foundation has collated a vast amount of empirical evidence of newly emerging value practices, which exist in a uneasy relationship with the dominant political economy, and of which some authors claim, like Jeremy Rifkin and Paul Mason, that it augurs a fundamental shift. What would be the conditions for this new regime to become autonomous and even dominant, and what are the signs of it happening?

Toronto Gets Its Own Free, Encrypted Mesh Network

Toronto Gets Its Own Free, Encrypted Mesh Network | Networked Society | Scoop.it

Free internet for all. 

 

Meshnet networks, or meshnets, are a form of intranet that doesn’t require a central router point. Instead of emitting from a single point, they’re distributed across an entire system of nodes. Accessing one is free—and doesn’t require the services of a telecom. 

 

Lau had spent the previous summer chatting with other meshnet enthusiasts in Europe, trying to figure out the best way to set up routers across the city. He suggested it was time to give it a try in Toronto. What grew out of Lau and Iantorno’s meeting, four months ago now, was a plan to build a meshnet in this city—one where users wouldn’t need to worry about eavesdroppers, because it would be encrypted. 

 

When it’s finished, Toronto’s first free-to-use meshnet should provide an accessible and secure internet community, maintained by locals keen on becoming digitally self-sufficient. Those early adopters could reshape our relationship to internet providers, and cut monthly rates out of the picture.

The P2P Foundation Ecosystem and what we did in 2015

The P2P Foundation infrastructure of production and governance currently consists of three different aspects: 

 

  • A formal foundation registered in the Netherlands with 3 operational hubs dedicated to organizing, advocacy, research and the facilitation of a knowledge commons. 

  • An expanding network of activists and researchers working at different levels of engagement, a small core team handling strategy and sustainability, and countless members engaging with and contributing to our information commons, including our blog, public Wiki and Loomio group. 

  • An ecosystem producing and sharing knowledge on the commons and P2P dynamics emerging throughout society. Our widely viewed and shared research wiki and blog are updated daily by our community.

Can the open hardware revolution help to democratise technology?

Can the open hardware revolution help to democratise technology? | Networked Society | Scoop.it

A fast-growing open hardware movement is creating ingenious versions of all sorts of technologies, and freely sharing them through social media.

CERN is home to some of the largest and most complex scientific equipment on the planet. Yet back in March, scientists gathered there for a conference about DIY laboratory tools. Scientists in poorly funded labs, particularly in the global south, have used DIY tools for many years. But well-resourced institutes are increasingly interested in the collaborative possibilities of open labware. Citizen scientists are also using it to build instruments for tasks like environmental monitoring, which can then be used to support community demands for justice from polluters. 

 

It is not only scientists – citizen or professional – who are going DIY. An open hardware movement of hobbyists, activists, geeks, designers, engineers, students and social entrepreneurs is creating ingenious versions of all sorts of technologies, and freely sharing the know-how through social media.

 

Open hardware is also encroaching upon centres of manufacturing. In August, for instance, the global gathering of FabLabs met in Shenzhen (already host to Maker Faires) to review how their network can help to decentralise design and manufacture.

Open Source is Tech’s Explosive Organic Movement

Open Source is Tech’s Explosive Organic Movement | Networked Society | Scoop.it

The explosive growth of the organic food industry represents an ethical response to the conventional agro-chemical world, one projected to continue through 2018 and beyond. But the organic movement doesn’t just stop at food. Let’s consider another thing we consume every day: information. 

 

For anyone who has bought into the food revolution, it’s not much of a stretch to see we’re ripe for an open information revolution. Not one defined simply by the omnipresence of information via the Internet, but one — like the food revolution — in which people demand accountability, transparency, and participation in the dissemination and consumption of information. Likewise, the outcome would be a new set of practices and players contributing to more healthy and sustainable environmental and personal practices. 

 

If information is like food, packaged in technological bits and bytes, then you might say free and open source software is equivalent to organic, labeled products. Just as we care about what we put into our bodies, we should care about what we install in our technology systems. Some of the big players we currently know and trust are, frankly, serving up a bunch of cookies that aren’t great for us. They help advertisers track us, compromise our privacy, and in some cases, make us susceptible to infections in the form of viruses and malware. When you navigate the app market, what do you put in your basket? What are you allowing into your life?

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Transparency and accountability in the world of information.

 

Our "walled garden" social networks - facebook is a prime example - actually isolate us from the world by putting us into a bubble of their construction. So do the big search engines, Google ahead of them all.

 

The algorithm rules, and by hiding some information and highlighting other bits and pieces, elections are skewed and social movements are effectively killed off or deviated.

 

We do need a revolution in the way we obtain and exchange data, and open source software is the antidote we are looking for, similar to the organic revolution that has already transformed our eating habits...

Peer-to-Peer Digital Networking: How the Internet Should Work | P2P Foundation | Networked Society | Scoop.it

I’m pleased to introduce Peer-to-Peer Digital Networking as a free digital book, and to invite public and private feedback on its further development.  

 

For years, I’ve been looking beyond the technical and economic limits which we’ve developed during our fast few decades of personal computing and digital networking.  I’ve looked at co-creative potentials envisioned by Internet pioneers, and added ideas on the basic nature of communication and community.  This book reflects all of that research– but in most ways, it’s just a beginning. 

 

We can rebuild communications technologies (tools, techniques and systems) to foster the emergence of communities and inter-communities of autonomous peers. It’s an immense challenge, however, because we must displace corporations which marry communities to software platforms based on financially extractive models.

Welcome to #OPENandChange Care - An invitation to join us in shared bid for a 100 Million Dollars to fix health and social care

Welcome to #OPENandChange Care - An invitation to join us in shared bid for a 100 Million Dollars to fix health and social care | Networked Society | Scoop.it

An invitation to join us in shared bid for a 100 Million Dollars to fix health and social care 

 

The MacArthur Foundation has decided to deliver a mighty push to fixing the world’s most hairy, entangled, unfixable problems. The idea is to look hard for a promising organisation, one that has the tenacity and creativity to provide a real solution to a problem (almost any problem is eligible). They will provide the resources: a whopping 100 million dollars. 

 

We have been thinking hard about the problem of providing high-quality, affordable health and social care to all. We think we have a candidate solution: provision of care services by communities equipped with open source knowledge and technology. From where we stand, these communities deliver services that are based on modern science (like those provided by the state and the private sector), yet they retain low overhead and human touch (like those provided by traditional communities). 

 

So, here’s what we want to do. We want to apply for the 100 million dollar grant, with this solution. But not alone. We volunteer to coordinate a “decentralized application”, with hundreds of communities, and organizations large and small, a swarm of solution providers working on a cloud of problems related to the provision of health and social care. 

 

We think we will win. Why? Because decentralization is, simply, a superior approach.

Can health and social care be de-centralised? Here is an interesting initiative to attempt and do so.

Open Source: PittMesh routers are owned by individuals | Networked Society | Scoop.it

PittMesh routers are owned by individuals and configured in a way that make them work together to build a larger, decentralized network. 

 

PittMesh is a new community-owned wireless network that runs OpenWrt, a widely supported, well documented, open source firmware for embedded systems like WiFi routers. PittMesh routers are owned by individuals and configured in a way that make them work together to build a larger, decentralized network. The project was started by a wireless networking non-profit called Meta Mesh and has been developed by a world-wide coalition of programmers for well over a decade. 

 

The PittMesh network uses a simple network routing protocol called Optimized Link-State Routing (OLSR). This protocol automatically senses other OLSR-enabled routers wirelessly and publishes routes to non-adjacent subnets on the network, which allows the routers themselves to act as the infrastructure needed to connect neighbors to one another. It also delivers Internet access from bandwidth donors.

Meet the men who have rewritten the internet

Meet the men who have rewritten the internet | Networked Society | Scoop.it

Given Sir Tim Berners-Lee's oft-stated worries about internet privacy you'd have to wonder whether he'd do things differently if he had his time over again. David Irvine, CEO of "the oldest startup in the world", MaidSafe, is sure that he would. 

 

"If you taught a computer engineering graduate all about IP networks and computers then said 'here are a bunch of cables and routers now go away and design a network where we can all store data and communicate securely', the very last thing they'd do is design a server," he said. "The only reason we did it that way because disk drives were invented before the internet."

 

Irvine and his colleagues have spent the last 10 years looking at ways to eliminate the weak link - the server - from the equation. "It should be about securing the data, not the server," he said. 

 

"The only way you can really do that is to create some form of network where humans can't interfere, and where a piece of data is never stored on a single machine. By definition that has to be an autonomous network."
